The field of Kido hold many whom excel at its basic utilization and understanding - incantation recitation, energy analysis and breakdown, and even an in depth comprehension of the forbidden arts. One could be full of knowledge in their own right, even holding a title as a "Master" and still not truly qualify as so in the eyes of another. When it comes down to it, the understanding and execution, along with an overall comprehension and adaptability in which one utilizes spells with pure efficiency and strategy is what truly makes one "masterful". To be confident in your abilities and strengths within the arts , but not so much so that it impedes your own progress and opens way for error - as the two High Priestess had just done.
To hold their composure even in the midst of their concealment spell being torn asunder and simultaneously being placed into an abrupt confinement was notable in its own right. In fact, it spoke volumes of the skills of the two Priestesses under fire. It showed for one, that they had expected Eizoku's interruption and had been lying in anticipation of him sensing them out and making their presence known to the public eye. It also spoke to their level of competence and knowledge of Kido as their actions continued seemingly uninterrupted showing that they were knowledgeable of how to escape the barrier which held them captive - or so they believed.
What the two had not fully accounted for was the speed at which the spell had been executed, or how quickly the primary effect of the spell took place - immediately. They had allowed their knowledge and confidence to dismantle the spell, to override the speed of execution, a factor that had been just as paramount.
The opaque golden barriers certainly shatter in reaction to the effort of the two, however the results of those efforts would certainly be off-putting once the reality of the situation had truly come to light. Despite the rather abrupt erection of the barriers, the priestesses would find themselves expending more than a notable amount of Spiritual Pressure in their attempt to dismantle it - certainly a far cry from the intended immediate shattering they were expecting to achieve. Throughout the continued channeling of their energy through the barrier, they would come to understand exactly why this had been the case. Execution and refinement. There had not been a single spell in Eizoku's arsenal that he had cast in the same manner or on the same level as the typical utilization of the masses. Every spell had been refined or modified in one way, shape, or form, however slight - a component of his mastery. In this case, the refinement lied within the structure and resilience of the erected barriers. As the two respectfully channeled their spiritual energy throughout the barrier, they would find their efforts vain for quite some time - the prolonged pooling of their energy presumingly into the structure allowing them to sense exactly how this barrier was formed. Although appearing to resemble a typical glass like flat faced rectangular prism structure, it had been anything but so. The walls of each face of the barrier had been erected and woven with such surgical like precision that it was almost reminiscent of a high quality thread counted sheet; it was as if there had been an innumerable amount of horizontal and vertical weaving of threads per square inch of the barrier. Because of this, the two would find their spiritual energy seeping around and out of the solidified porous structure, instead of within, making it much more difficult to dismantle, and realistically requiring more than an "equal" and opposite output of energy to unravel. It had in theory been something similar to an individual holding their hands in front of their face and blowing between the crevices to no avail.
By time the two had managed to truly escape these barriers, they would find the unwoven strands of the threaded barrier reflecting and dispersing into the light of the sun - outside. Their first mistake, had been allowing themselves to be completely captured. Immediately upon the barriers closing, before the two had even made contact with the barrier, they would have already been transported outside - making all of their efforts from then forward futile in the moment. Although it was certain that all those within the Kido Corps were a cut above the rest, Eizoku too had been in the top tier of that "cut", and perhaps even above.
Despite the Lieutenant's attempted interruption and obvious irritation with the man, the Third Seat continued on uninterrupted in his speech and walking towards the exit of the establishment before allowing Arashi to continue on in his speech. The increasing Spiritual Pressure of the man being met with an equal resistance of his own as he remained unfazed in entirety - his back still to the man, not caring to see the scowl that painted itself across his visage.
“ The mission is completed. You acted on behalf of all of the Fifth Division and since you feel so strongly, you can be the one to deliver it to Kido Corps Head Quarters and quarantine it. As you said, there is a possible mole. Until we know more await for the Captain, your mentor. I will make a report on Fifth Division’s discovery to the Head Lieutenant.
This is an order. I will join shortly.”
Begrudgingly and without a word more, the Third Seat complied out of respect more so for the manner in which Arashi had handled the situation with a verbal compromise rather than continuing on with a physical altercation. His route, now changing from his intended path to the Twelfth Division, to the Kido Corps head quarters. Leaving Jizakai as silent as a worm in the room to his lonesome.
The only reply lingering in his thoughts as he made his advent to his new destination.
"The one giving the orders soon….will be me.”
