He was silent as a shadow as he moved through the back alleys and darkened corners of the more desolate side of town. He wore all black, the only part of him that would be visible from time to time in the shadows were his eyes... His left eye was a solid red at the moment, with more lenses, though those where flipped up to the side of his head, and his right only had a single red cross upon it. Though the glint of the light on the specially made lenses, even then, were barely visible. The hat on his head would cover them from view from time to time.

He breathed lightly, enjoying the filtered air that passed through his mask. He felt unclean enough having to deal with those demons in his regular day to day life. He didn't want to have to breath in their filth. He had learned of the location of that poor soul who had been touched by the fire of the Wonder he had killed not even a day before. Though the fire had been harmless, a mere illusion, the people believed that the Wonder himself had started the fire that killed his wife and child, before in turn taking his own life. It was what he wanted. But if they asked too many questions, learned more about this man... well... They'd then realize the Wonder's fire couldn't burn. His story would dissolve in an instance... So now, here he was.

He found the dirty apartment the man lived in... he wouldn't really be missed, he mused. He was a thug, a brute force sort of thief... he was scum, just like the Wonders. He'd die too... his eyes taking in his surroundings, finding a slightly taller building. That one would do nicely... he moved to find a way up, scaling with relative ease and grace, before he'd settle in, bringing his rifle around to take aim at the door. Now... he'd just have to sit and wait.

Corbin didn't bother with the same level of stealth that someone else was currently using. His eyes were bright, alert... one hand on the hilt of his blade. This wasn't the nicest side of town, he knew that. Dangerous.... still, he could hold his own, as long as he wasn't blindsided... so he made it a point to not be blindsided. He approached the door when he arrived, knocking... There was a crash on the other side, causing his brows to raise for a moment. Then he heard a rattle on the other side of the door, someone putting a chain in place... The door opened partway.

"Yeah, what'ya want?" the man asked on the other side. Corbin smirked a little, the man seemed the sort of rough and tumble sort that could easily have been less victim, and more instigator.

"Mister Hickey? A word, if you will-" he began. The man slammed the door shut... Corbin sighed as he heard a crash out the back way. "Just because I speak proper english does NOT mean I'm the constable..." he muttered, as he heard trash fall over... the man was getting away. Corbin took off at a run... his feet digging into the ground as he moved. At least he was in his prime, he mused... he had under gone rigorous training for chases such as this. The man came into view as he rounded the corner, moving to knock over garbage cans, and generally try to be a nuisance and slow his pursuit.

Corbin hurtled them easily enough...

"For a man who claims to have been burnt by fire, you seem rather spry!" he called out. They were making alot of noise... this could get ugly fast...

"I din' do nuthin'!" the man cried.

"Except to run when all I wished do was talk?" Corbin asked, as another can landed in front of him, he sprang onto it, then leaped off.. leading shoulder first into the man's back, driving him to the ground. They rolled across the ground, Corbin coming up to his feet, the man in his hands. Lifting him up.

"Tell me about the Wonder..." he told him.

"Why'nt ya let Tom go?" came another voice, Corbin sighing as he found himself surrounded by a large mass of rough looking men....

"Great... look, I have some questions..."

"An' we got some answers... ain't that right blokes?" said the leader of the group, Corbin's eyes moving around slowly to take in the sights of the weapons on their persons... Just great... absolutely peachy...

Damian swore, the curse coming out much deeper with his mask on. The man who had approached looked vaguely familair... and when he knocked... he was already annoying him... he sighted his head... but then he took off running.

"Wha..." he muttered as he saw he was chasing his target. "Damnation..." he muttered, picking up and giving chase, running across the roof before leaping onto an adjacent one... he continued onward, trying to keep up, diving into a prone position once the other man had tackled him. He slid across the rooftop, stopping just at the edge. Taking aim as the other's surrounded the men... he grinned a little. The idiot was holding him up for him... excellent...

"I commend yo' spirit free of the touch of the Wonder's, may hellfire cleanse you of the impurities of yo' sin, and their touch..." he said, the mask keeping his voice deep, a rich timbre... as he fired... the low THOOM echoing across the rooftops... the man's head exploding as the railroad spike passed clean through, and hammering into the chest of one of the other men, sending him reeling backwards. "May you find eternal peace..."

Corbin had opened his mouth to say something else... when the man's head wound up with a massive hole in it... blood spraying into the air... the man that had been behind him, collapsing as a spike appeared in his chest... A spike? He'd seen that before... Christ... it was him! He threw the body aside, and dove the cover of the alley as the men, staring in surprise, began to give out shouts, and scattered. He pressed his back to the wall, peeking around the corner for a moment, looking for where the shot had come from. His breathing came out in gasps... he had been hunting the hunter since his arrival in New Venice, but now... being that close to him again, brought a chill down his back. Fear... was that fear? For the love of God. The hunter was just that, a hunter, cold and calculating... how could he contend with that?

Through sheer perserverance... he can't kill you, not for good... what's pain to a man who has known the greatest there is?

And through resolve. That was his final thought as he came out of cover, fast, diving across the ground, rolling as another shot echoed out... it hit the ground, embedding there, as he took cover against a low wall, peering out... he saw the glint of a lens... then threw himself down as another shot fired... the wall exploding above his head... He growled low in his throat, springing up over the wall... another shot firing as he ran, feeling the barb of the spike whistle past and cut his arm. He winced, stumbling, before he found an alley. He paused momentarily, before he began to climb upwards...

He cursed as he fired, again, and again... the man knew where to find him... and the way he moved showed he had dealt with him before. He feared those shots... good. Let them fear him... let him be the boogey man to the boogey men... He grinned as he saw the flash of blood as he hit the man... but scowled as he pressed on. He was at the base of the building... he wouldn't be able to get a clear shot there... He slung his rifle over his back, and pulled the twin blades from their sheathes on his back, moving toward the ladder as the man surfaced briefly... those eyes... hadn't that man fallen from a zepplin? Hadn't he been older? Perhaps a son... Ah, a revenge story? He loved those. He kicked out, boot to face, sending the man back into the alley, before grabbing the side of the ladder, and sliding down. The man hit the ground with a sickening impact... but sprang back to his feet as if nothing had happened... though his nose bled profusely from the kick.

"Yo' are... very... resilient..." Damian told him, bringing both of his blades across in a quick slash for the man's chest... He wasn't the sort to toy with his prey...

The kick to the face, he should have expected that.... the man had had him in his sights... how did he expect to get up the ladder without resistance? He hit hard, though the impact didn't hurt in the least as he sprang back to his feet, the man said something... there was still a ringing in his ear, and his arm hurt... he surely had broken his nose... Then he advanced, forcing Corbin to leap backwards, and out of the alley, his blade coming free to block the next flurry... then the next... stumbling backwards under the surprising assault of the masked man...

"I can't let you claim another life," Corbin told him, parrying another strike... but the man stabbed with his other blade... catching him in the hip. He grunted, stumbling backwards further... the street seemed to grow more and more abandoned as the fight broke out with steel... well, he assumed those were steel... one glinted with a brilliant silver, the other was a more subdued grey... but... they both hurt, he knew that...

Ida had been walking down the street on her way home. The crowd seemed to get thinner and thinner. Some even walking slightly faster in the opposite direction Ida had been walking in. It really wasn't the time that most people started for home and there wasn't even a cloud in the sky so it wasn't snow coming.

Even though she should have probably followed the crowd, Ida couldn't help but let her curiosity get the best of her. She walked cautiously, hearing the sounds of what must have been a fight that had broken out. But that didn't exactly explain why those people were leaving the opposite way unless... there was ammunition involved.

Suddenly, Corbin came out of no where. "Mr. Ferris! What's going on?!"

The dark figure emerged, bringing one arm up to deflect a powerful chop from the other man... it struck his forearm, and made a metallic sound, sliding.. he felt the blade stick for a moment as he brought the blade of his other hand around for a quick backslash. Then he pulled, there was a soft ripping sound as the metal bar that ran along his forearm tore the fabric of his coat as it spun... turning into a disc of metal upon his arm... the blade in his hand dropping, only to swing down one a thin cord, swinging about to reveal the shield he now had.

"Won't let me? Can't stop me... And He said, "Let none suffer life," so I shall not, demon," the figure said, when the woman appeared. Eyes seeming to glow in the dim light, he snapped his shield arm up, the blade on the cord lancing out like a spear, as he spun back around. If the blade hit, it wouldn't stay, it'd be ripped right back... though he wasn't expecting it to hit, no... he was counting on him to bat the blade away... the real attack was the second blade in his right hand, slashing across for his foe's stomach.

Corbin was surprised when the shield sprang out of seemingly nowhere... jumping back a bit to avoid the retalitory slash... when he heard his name called. He turned his head for a second to take in the sight of Ida... his arm and hip were both bleeding profusely... as was his nose. Inwardly he swore...

"Run..." he said simply, seeing the flash of motion, he turned to bat the flying blade away, cursing as he saw the folly of his action, coupled with the distraction of the young future doctor. He leaped backwards, feeling the blade cut across his stomach, it was a shallow cut, stung, his free hand going to clutch at the wound for a moment. He didn't want to say Ida's name in front of the hunter... he could use it if he failed. And he felt like failure was a very real option. Though with her there, he wasn't going to let her come to any harm either. As the man advanced, Corbin's blade worked, furiously to deflect the faster blade, the loud crash of metal on metal ringing out.

"It wasn't the Wonder who set the granary on fire, was it, Hunter?" he asked, loud enough to let Ida know he was dealing with a Wonder hunter, without letting the hunter know he was warning her. If he just shout out, "Run, it's a hunter," he'd know what Corbin already deduced. So he found a roundabout way of doing it... He brought his blade down to catch the swinging weapon of the hunter, that sword on the lanyard came whistling at him again, causing him to turn, free hand coming up to catch it by the hilt.

"It doesn't matter, as long as I still stand, you shan't claim another, I will stop you..." Corbin said, bringing his sword up and over, across the cord... The curved blade the hunter had used would clatter across the ground and into the alley...

Ida gasped, bringing her hands to her mouth and dropping her bag to the ground. Just what int he world was going on? Why was Corbin fighting this man Hunter? And then the fire was brought up. She had read and heard all about it. Who was this mysterious man and why was Corbin being called a demon? If anything, the man with the glowing eyes was the demon.

She couldn't run... Wouldn't run, because she saw Corbin was bleeding and not just a little bit. If she were to leave she had a feeling that this time, she wouldn't find him, only to have him die from bleeding out. "Stop! Don't kill him!"

Damian snorted at his sentiment... Then at the woman who tried to stop him... his shield coming up to swing at her, hoping to send her away from him.

"Begone, woman, this creature... you call a Wonder... is a monster from hell, I've seen 'is kind befo'" he said. "Don't let foolish sentimentality blind you..." if she proceeded, he'd have to kill her. For all he knew, she was a Wonder herself, he couldn't take any chances... And the fact that she would be defending the man, whom she called Mister Ferris... She would be considered corrupted, her soul tainted, and he'd have to commend her to the great beyond. He swung his shield arm back around, the shield spinning to retract. His hand dropping to his belt to remove a small, metalic sphere with a single gear on it. Three red dots painted onto the top. He twisted it as he danced backward, away from the Wonder with the sword, then let fly... the gear would turn, before the shell would pop open, spilling a milky white substance from it's contents... the liquid suddenly bursting into flame as it exploded from sphere...

Corbin grunted as he took a swing at Ida, trying to move her out of the way. His weapon crashing against that damn shield as he hopped back, trying to pursue him... then the shield was gone, and he was throwing a sphere... his hand came up on instinct, trying to grab at it. His reflexes were well honed, his hand grasping it... as the liquid splashed against his face and chest... flames appearing across his body, burning his shirt... causing him to stagger back a bit from the brightness... before his eyes focused on the man in the mask.

"He's a Wonder hunter, Miss," he explained to Ida, "And I do not believe he cares about who is caught in the crossfire..." he added. Turning his blade around... seeming to not notice the flames licking at his face and chest.

As if instincts kicked in, Ida took a swing at the shield as it came near her, causing a fist shaped dent in the metal. So that answered one of the questions she was so curious about. Could she pack a punch? The answer was a resounding yes! She had never tried to hit anyone in her entire life for fear of just this. But now, it seemed as though it were to come in handy for the time being.

"F-FIRE!" She managed to yell out just as she pointed to the flames. How could he not feel that?! She could feel the heat from where she was standing! "Dropt it! You're going to burn yourself horribly!" Perhaps he was one of those very rare cases of people who couldn't feel pain. But that wasn't a wonder power, it was a nerve disease!

The hunter was more than a little surprised by the impact, sending him sailing through the air... he hit the ground hard a few meters away, groaning as he came up... Moving to unsling his rifle... taking aim at Ida...

"So, two of you, huh? Guess you demons mus' keep to yourself..." he said... sighting her head... while she was distracted by the other man. His arm shook lightly... it hurt... she had blindsided him... it was nice to be surprised every now and then... but he wasn't going to let a Wonder win the day. He slowly squeezed the trigger... "THOOM!" the report resounded...

Corbin was about as surprised as the other man for a moment, glancing toward Ida.

"Not bad..." he said, tossing the shell aside... "It's only fire... Greek if I know my noxious chemicals..." he added, glancing toward the hunter... when he saw him take aim at Ida... swearing, he brushed his arm out, meaning to sweep her off her feet and into the alley, keeping her away from the flames that engulfed his face... when the spike railed straight into his spine... causing him to stumble a bit, into the wall... he rested there for a moment, clutching at the bricks of the building, working on extinguishing the flames, when he turned back around, his shirt had been scorched, baring his chest, but no burns on his person. He looked at her for a moment, wincing, his legs wobbling... they weren't working... then the second spike found his throat. He coughed as he tumbled to the ground, laying there, unmoving... The last thing he'd hear... was the sounds of the hunter retreating... hurt, battered, and bruised... he'd know better than to stick around, especially in this side of town...

All Ida could do was stand there, dumbfounded. Her legs wouldn't move to carry her out of the way. So this was it. She was going to die here. Because a man thought she was a demon. Ida had always thought she was far from that. She believed in God, read the Bible, and had gone to church every Sunday for years. Just because she was a little stronger then the average human being, that made her a demon? She wasn't going to become a full doctor, she wasn't going to get married, have children of her own. Grow old. She was never going to see Benito again. That thought caused her eyes to blur with tears.

Ida could see the flames eating away at Corbin's shirt, but oddly enough, she never smelled burning flesh that usually came with it. He was coming for her, to move her out of the way. Her savior. But the sound coming from the tube, causing her to jump and close her eyes. Ida braced herself, waiting for the pain. Just because she was strong didn't mean she was invulnerable to projectiles. But pain didn't come. Instead, she heard the sound of a body hitting a wall. When she opened her eyes, they saw the sight of Corbin against the wall, just in time for a spike going right to his throat. "CORBIN!" Her legs began to move on their own once again as she rushed forward towards him, dropping to her knees beside his body.

"Corbin," she choked, her mind completely forgetting about the man who had fired the shots. Ida was afraid to move him. The spike that was in his back was too dangerous to remove in the middle of a cold and dirty street, and the spike in the neck was the death sentence. With every pump of his heart, more blood gushed from his neck, though she put her hand there [i]gently[/] trying to keep as much pressure there to stop the bleeding, but not crush his windpipe. "Its gonna be all right. I'll fix- I'll fix you. You'll be fine! I just- I just have to get you back to the clinic, but I can't move you because you might-" her sentence was cut short as soon as she realized that the puddle of blood had grown too big and she no longer felt the pulse of the veins on her finger tips. "No..."

She was now alone, kneeling in a pool of blood, crying over a man she had barely known.

Corbin was quite warm to the touch... possibly from the fire, but no burns whatsoever... though he proved he wasn't invulnerable as he laid there... unmoving, unbreathing... he had died. Definately. One didn't really even need to be a doctor to see that... His body growing colder by the second... as if the heat was carried on by his life. The iron spikes just sitting there, embedded in flesh and bone... he'd need to be buried. That was usually one of the final thoughts someone would have after grieving, if they grieved. His eyes staring up, blankly... no life behind them. It would take twenty four hours before his powers would kick in again...

Ida reached out and carefully closed his eyes. He said he didn't have any family anymore so now it was Ida's job to take care of his body. Wiping her eyes on her coat sleeve, she carefully picked him up, and carrying him in her arms. She felt as though if she were to toss him over her shoulder, it would be an insult to what he had just done for her. He saved her life. Ida's eyes began to well with tears again as she made her way back to the clinic.

The doctor had gone to visit his mother for the week leaving his small clinic in Ida's hands. When Corbin was safely on the small operating table, Ida went to clean herself up, stripping off her bloody dress and coat, tossing them into a fire she had started and scrubbed her body clean with some cold water before the changed into a spare dress she had kept in the office.

Ida went to work, first, removing the charred remains of his shirt and began on the spike on his back. Several hours later, after carefully removing both spikes and closing the holes with some stitches, and having to take many breaks to pull herself together, she was able to clean him up. "Thank you," she said softly, patting his cold skin dry. "I know that if it wasn't for me, you'd probably still be alive and-" she took in a shaky breath, "I can't forgive myself for that. I hope you don't hate me..."

Finally, she was was done and he was covered from head to toe with a clean, white sheet. She slumped at the desk in the room, her head laying on her folded arms. She was exhausted. Her energy levels had depleted from carrying him causing her to fall into a light sleep.

"Ida?" Ben pounded on the door, his voice raised. "Ida, c'mon, I know you're in there!" She hadn't come home, and now he showed up at her work to find the place deserted? She hadn't worked all night, that much was clear, so what was she up to in there?

As the next day arrived, there was a bright, white light coming from the room... namely the wounds, though it was cinched by the threads... the light burned them, pushing them aside.... A loud gasp escaped his lips as he sat up... eyes moving around slowly to take in his surroundings, touching where the spike had enterred his throat... feeling the scorched pieces of thread... he removed them with a wince, then moved to stand. He grunted as his legs refused to work right away, and he toppled to the ground with a resounding thud.

"Ow... for the love of Christ, Mother Mary, and Buddha!" he shouted in a curse, hand moving to cover his mouth... he didn't know who was in there... he'd have to... to... His eyes slowly moved around the room again... he was in a clinic! His memory caught up.... "Ida..." he muttered, hoping she was okay... He groaned, stretching out his back, feeling the threads fall as he took a deep, shakey breath. He'd need to leave, get away, find a place to recoup... If it was Ida, well, she thought him dead... if it wasn't... well... then he'd be in serious trouble.... then there was the sound of the door bang.

"Wonderful..." he muttered, that answered his question... maybe if he tried a window?

Ida's eyes opened slowly. She hadn't realized she had fallen asleep but wasn't quiet sure what caused her to wake up. She had heard a voice, but also a pounding. She sat up, glancing up at the clock and over her shoulder at the table where she was sure she had left Corbin's body. Rubbing her eyes, she stood up but nearly gasped when she realized that he was no longer there. Was it just a dream?

No. There were still traces of dried blood under her nails that she hadn't been able to scrub away last night. The sound of pounding grew louder in her ears and a voice accompanied it. She knew she should open the door, but she couldn't. Ida was in a panic. A dead man's body had gone missing and she-

Then her eyes landed on the man on the floor. Instead of being rigamortis, he appeared to be... Ida let out a scream and fell backwards, hitting her head against the edge of the desk on the way to the floor.

The sound of Ida's scream went through his body like an electric current. He crashed into the door, attempting to break it down, but failed. Stepping back, he looked around frantically, his eyes lighting on a good sized rock. Hefting it, he sent it sailing through the window closest to the door, wasting no time in climbing in though he got himself no few cuts in the process. Tumbling through the window, he came to his feet...to see Ida and another now familiar person, both laying on the floor.

Without hesitation, he went immediately to Ida's side, kneeling next to her to check on her. "Ida? Love, are you alright?"

Corbin winced at the shrill scream, accompanied by the dull thud of a skull on something solid. He sighed, moving to stand, eyes moving toward the door... then back to them.

"She must have fainted..." he said softly, rubbing the back of his neck... he could still feel the spike there, even though it had been removed. "I think she must have believed me dead..." he added quickly, holding up his hands. He looked around for a shirt, then sighed, moving to kneel beside them, eyes flicking up to the corner of the desk. He was relieved she survived the night, even if he, himself, had not... Though now he was worried... "She may have hit her head on the way down..." he told him.

"Why don't you just stay the hell back." Ben snapped, his hand moving to the hilt of the pistol he always wore at his hip. Something in the motion made it clear that he knew exactly how to use it. "I knew you were trouble the moment I saw you in that alley. What did you do, huh?" He rose, eyes narrowed dangerously at Corbin.

Corbin stared at him... his eyes were a little dangerous... they didn't show fear of the weapon... though he hated dying right after he was reborn... instead he just stared at him...

"I had a run in with a Wonder hunter, last night... and in the process, bumped into her, what she was doing in the Shadowlands is beyond me... but in the fight, she begame a target... and I pushed her out of the way, I was in turn shot, I must have lost consciousness, for I just now woke up... I don't know how she got me back here... but she must have treated my wounds... which, she didn't know, would heal..." he told her. He found it best to be up front, he left out the fact that Ida was a wonder, just in case he didn't know... "Now please, put the gun down, and let's get her onto something softer than the ground, it looks like she hit her head when she fainted," he told him, his tone even, attempting to stare him down...

Ben stared at Corbin for a long, drawn-out moment before relaxing slightly with a terse nod. Crouching, he lifted Ida into his arms and moved to deposit her on one of the beds made available for patients. Stepping back, he felt a momentary surge of alarm at the sight of blood on her sleeve...until he realized the blood was from him. He'd managed to cut a nice gash into his forearm climbing through the window, and he could tell he had a few other cuts besides.

Corbin nodded, moving to stand.

"I'll get a bowl, some cool water, and a cloth," he said, pausing, "And some thread and needle, it looks like..." he said, moving to scan the room.

Equipment for surgery right next to the whiskey, you never know--

Never bowls that we eat in, Darius... for the love of the Mother...

Keep a cloth handy, always...

Words told to him in simpler times, when he assisted Anne... he moved skimming over the contents of the room... he'd quickly return, moving to set the items on the table, then moved to fill the bowl with water.

"Has she taught you anything?" he asked Ben after a bit.

Ben only twitched slightly as Corbin went looking for the items, glad that the man found them easily enough. "Taught me anything about what?" He asked cautiously, eying the man as he did his best to hold a cloth against his arm and slow the bleeding.

Corbin would move, a little shakingly on his legs... he hated having his spine broken, the phantom pains and symptoms he'd have for a full day or so afterwards. He glanced toward Ben, as he took the one cloth, then sighed, moving to find another one. It was no different than Anne's office, he mused. He returned, dipping the cloth in the water, and moved to wipe Ida's forehead.

"Medicine... this should help reduce the swelling, if your arm doesn't stop bleeding soon we may need to stitch it, once she comes too, she can decide whether you need an antibiotic or not..." he told him. Corbin understood the man's distrust of him... hell, the first time they had met he had been cold drunk off his rocker... there was more to him than met the eye though it would seem. He understood medicine? He was a Wonder? There was most likely several questions he'd be expected to answer eventually.

"What're you, some kinda doctor?" Ben was still watching Corbin suspiciously...and dripping a little on the floor. He had crawled through broken glass, after all, though he hadn't noticed the pain at the time. All he'd cared about was Ida, and that was still all he cared about.

"Is she gonna be okay?" He moved closer, concern in his eyes as he looked down at her.
