    :: 'Are you sure she's really going to be here,' that's what the sergeant was really trying to say Zelse thought. A smirk would cross the fringe edges of his mouth for a mere second before Zelse dismissed the idea. The men were simply looking to him for all the answers and it was his job to provide them. It wasn't that surprising that after days of following seemingly pointless leads and coming up empty handed time and again that they would begin to complain about the mission. But Zelse couldn't afford to let up just yet, he had absolute trust in some of the contacts who'd reported the bleeding captain of the Crazy Rainbow Star Pirates herself was in Alabasta. He didn't know why, and frankly he didn't exactly care, but these were the sort of opportunities that a young officer looking to be promoted quickly simply couldn't afford to pass up. So here he was, battling the heat and the dropping morale of his men searching down every last little clue that he could dig up about her whereabouts. He'd even gone so far as to break his men up into teams of four in order to cover more ground. Even though he'd taken precautions and had every squad bring along a baby den den mushi so that they could contact him at a moments notice, there were still risks in breaking up the squad's numbers like this. Zelse only hoped that they didn't try and do anything stupid if they were the ones who found her first. As for Zelse himself, he searched alone in the bazaar; his marine officer's suit covered with the cloak commonly worn by the people of this island. It helped fight the heat and didn't give away his presence. He didn't normally care about standing out but then again this was a high profile target after all... ::

    "Just keep searching alright, we know she's here somewhere. We just need to find her."

    "Sir!"

During her attempts for recruiting she heard several whispers about marines looking for some high profile pirate. All hope was being evaporated by the blazing sun. She wanted to at least return to ship with a souvenir, to at least have something to show for her efforts. She entered the closest bazaar to her current location. She was extremely cautious upon entering. She may not be the pirate of the rumors, but that wouldn't stop any marine from taking her in as a bonus. She acted very casual upon entering, picked out a small gift and then turned around to walk out. It was then when she saw a small piece of clothing from underneath someone's coat. It bore the Marine insignia. She walked outside pretending not to notice, but assuming she was seen as well, she waiting for the man to follow her outside.

It would have passed as unremarkable except for the fact that her gaze had been just a bit longer than the usual passers by. It wasn't enough to go on by itself because he didn't get a good enough look at her but Zelse was going to make sure, it was too convenient of timing that the moment after she looked his way that she began to leave the market; it could just be coincidence but something deep in Zelse's gut told him otherwise...he had to know for sure. He began to follow the young woman, attempting to not draw attention to himself as he went. He wanted to close the distance and get a better look before anything else. If everything went smoothly he'd have a positive id before the woman even took notice that he was following her. ::

It was times like this he was glad he could improvise because as the blur of projectiles raced towards him he threw himself forward in a forward roll, the kind martial artists use to recover from being thrown. As he rolled over his shoulder and into a partly kneeling position he shoved off the ground with his hands with enough force to flip himself over horizontally, utilizing that short air-time Zelse whipped his leg, kicking in time with the spin in order to perform Rankyaku ("Storm Leg") sending a horizontal blade of crescent shaped air streaking in the direction of his attacker. It had no truly intended target as Zelse still didn't know who or what had directed that attack his way but we was of a mind not to let them take time to line up another barrage. In the moment following his kick he would leap up onto his feet from his now-sitting position; he was ready for what came next. ::

Rumee had a strong sense this was a signature of the Marines, and knew now her hunch was spot on. However her little test to see if the man was indeed a marine had put him on his guard. Attacking now would require a more direct approach using overwhelming force. This wasn't her forte. She was used to catching people of their guard, or setting them up with her crew. This would be a sink or swim moment for her. Especially with her defeat meaning her capture. She wasn't sure on the intel this man had on her. But she wanted to try something regardless. She would let a puddle of blood flow from behind the building into the man's line of sight. Hoping this would lull him into believing she was hit by his attack.

    Regardless of the outcome of her little test, she would reveal herself shortly after. Ready for a direct confrontation. She forges a large broadsword using her powers and thrusts the large weapon forward. Using the motion as a cue, several needles of blood shoot from the sword's tip, heading towards the man at remarkable speeds.

He hadn't heard an outcry of pain but that didn't necessarily mean anything especially if the attack was indeed a powerful pirate captain. He approached with caution; this put him little more than close spitting-distance from the woman as she rounded the bend and seemingly formed a blade as if out of nowhere. 'Some kind of ability, one capable of shaping materials perhaps?' He considered his assessment but had no time to muse over the nature of her ability as from the sword she'd shaped only a moment before a barrage of small needle-like projectiles fired towards him. If he wasn't sure this was indeed his target before, he was pretty sure now. Throwing up his left hand, palm open and directed towards her as though he were attempting to call her to a halt or catch a ball she'd thrown. Zelse concentrated his Haki into an invisible shield of armor around his palm and with one precise thrust of his palm he smashed the projectiles from the air, as though they'd been little more then rainwater striking a stone wall. Without missing a beat Zelse rushed inwards, attempting to get inside the effective range of her broadsword, inside arm's reach where he was at his most effective. If he managed to get close enough he would transfer the force of his Haki to his right hand where he would attempt to smash her mid-section with a palm strike, directing the Haki in a blast that could potentially send her flying back if she had no means of mitigating the effect. The blow, should it land would deal a noticeably larger amount of damage than Zelse's raw physical power should be able to produce by the looks of him. If he didn't manage to close the gap in this action, he would respond appropriately. ::

She de-solidified the blood that had composed the broadsword and let the liquid blood fall to the ground. Hoping it could act as a slick of sorts, but that wouldn't be her only defense. She would take her fan, still folded and use it as a stop against the mans punch. The force would still damage her arm, but it wasn't as bad as taking a direct hit. With the man as close as he was, she equips herself with claws of solidified blood. The blood would have poured from her finger tips, forming claws around her fingers.

    She lunges forward, attacking using her claws in an overhead cross slash. It was at this moment, while she was in the act of performing this attack that the blood on the floor began to form into several sharp spikes, damaging the mans feet should be still standing in the blood puddle from earlier.

As the woman rushed towards him telegraphing her attack Zelse readied his concentration. As she swiped her claws at him he performed Kami-e ("Paper Drawing") relaxing his body to superhuman levels, this tactic would have allowed Zelse to 'float' around her claw attacks like a leaf on the wind but he couldn't have predicted that in that precise moment, several sharp blades erupted into his feet breaking the technique while he was only midway through dodging her claws. Thrown off balance with damaged feet and the momentum of his dodge the result of this recipe is that the woman's razor claws take a successful bite out of side as he falls away to the side. His momentum sends him tumbling to the side for a short moment before he manages to recover his footing. A grimace is plainly evident on his face as he stands on his injured feet, pushing the pain to the back of his mind while he concentrates on his fight. He would stare down his opponent with striking blue eyes, his sunglasses haven fallen off in the last exchange, Zelse would also take this brief pause to remove the Alabastan cloak, opting to reveal his marine officer's suit and remove the burden of the extra layer of clothing...he finally understood, or at least had a much better idea of what the women's ability was and so he made sure not to be standing on anymore puddles of blood. ::

    "It was blood the whole time...should have been obvious, oh well."

Her attack had been successful, but not in the way she intended. She made note of his incredible ability to dance with an attack. At least, that's how she saw things. When the man stood up and confirmed what she knew all along she couldn't have been happier. She was actually like a detective there! Noticing the little things and acting on her feet like that. She was amazed by how she handled the situation. However, this wasn't the time for that. The marine was only hurt, not defeated. She would have to wrap things up before continuing her celebration.

    "I take it you are now realizing who I am? To reveal yourself otherwise would be foolish."

    After getting her serious talk on, Rumee would resume her attack. The claws that surrounded her hands would dissolve into liquid once more, soaking herself in her own blood. That wasn't the end of it though. She would soon surround the entirety of her body that wasn't a joint in her blood and harden it. Granting her some additional defense against the man. However this process wouldn't be instantaneous so she would keep an eye on the marines movements during this metamorphosis.

    :: Zelse watched her expression carefully for any signs of change. He saw the excitement and the desire for celebration there, she was in for a surprise if she thought him defeated already. As she began to use her ability again, Zelse wasted no time and afforded her no quarter. He whipped his right leg up in a vertical kick performing Rankyaku ("Storm Leg"), sending another blade of air streaking towards her while she was busy with her technique. ::

He called it a Rankyaku. She had heard the name before, but wasn't sure from where. When the blue wave first appeared she would use some of the blood she had intended for the armor, and turned it into a saber. Hardening it and using it as a means to parry the incoming attack. She didn't have enough time to harden it properly however, and the saber she had formed shattered and she suffered some damage from the backlash. She wasn't to worried about it, she was used to pain and bleeding was clearly of no concern to her. Thankfully the portion of the armor she did complete reduced the damage from the attack, a good portion of her wasn't protected now though.

    "You must be very cocky, stupid or both. You actually think I will fall here?"

    She wanted to end things now, so she stopped pulling her 'punches'. After taking a deep breath she held out both of her palms. Blood began pouring out of them, rushing towards the marine like a surge of crimson water. However inside this surge of crimson water, was several tiny but extremely sharp hardened fragments of her blood. If he finds himself hit by the attack, he would be cut up in several different places. The puncture abilities of the needles just enough to ensure maximum effectiveness.

He knew that a secondary effect of her fruit must be that she's not limited to her own supply of blood, that would have been only about 8.5 pints given her size. Still, there was likely a conditional limit, he just had to figure out what it is. That would have to come later however Zelse had no intention of letting her dowse him in the substance her ability allowed her to control, that could only end bad. So, as the torrential spray of blood raced towards him Zelse leaped into the air, even with his above average athleticism it didn't appear that he would clear the height needed to avoid the spray, that is until he performed Geppou ("Moon Step") and kicked off the air itself as though he had jumped off of solid footing giving him the full height of a second jump. The force of the Geppou technique caused some blood to leak out of the bottom of his shoes from where her spikes had penetrated earlier, the force of his air jump clearly aggravating the damage further. While he hung mid-air he took the opportunity to respond to her taunt... ::

    "Well don't we have a very high opinion of ourselves."

    :: Zelse wasted now time in performing a second Geppou in order to propel himself down towards her like a missile, as he sped towards her he activated his Tekkai ("Iron Mass") in order to harden his body to be like iron, transforming his entire body into a solid iron projectile that would demolish everything in its path like a wrecking ball. ::

Rumee was becoming exhausted, but her actions wouldn't make that apparent. Despite her exhaustion, she would need to act. The marine used himself as a missile, and was now speeding towards her. She would wait until the last possible moment and then jump out of the way, making sure to splash some of her blood on him whilst doing so. Her timing was far from perfect however. The man's airborne tackle connected with her left leg, causing severe pain and rendering it immovable. Things weren't looking as bright as they were a few moments ago. But the blood that should now be on the marine would all but assure her victory. She would apply severe amounts of pressure on the marine, by using the blood on him to squeeze and constrict him. Especially so on his previous injuries.

    :: Zelse was positively snarling, the veneer of calm he'd that had been pretty much his only facial expression this entire time had been shattered and his white-hot rage was plainly evident at the moment while he was being squeezed with the power of Rumee's devil's fruit power. He was so close...he felt her leg break under the force of his last attack but he'd rushed in too quickly, he should have held back and continued to harry her from a distance and now he was in serious danger of losing the fight. Zelse struggled against the force of her ability but he had no leverage, he'd hardened his body in order to perform the last attack and he hadn't been planning on having to fight against constriction when he'd released the technique. He struggled on the ground against the situation but unless he could come up with something soon, she'd probably manage to finish the fight in the next move. ::

Placing her hand against one of the more injured parts of her body, it was now covered in blood. She didn't have the focus to generate any more blood, but she could definitely make use of what she already had. She would flick her bloodied hand towards the marine. Most of the blood on her hand was now flying towards the marine. The blood would splatter over his face. With the extra blood on his face, it would be easier for her to apply pressure to. She increased the force of the pressure being applied to his face, hoping to render him unconscious. Her injuries would prevent her from taking it a step further and finishing him off, but she would have at least one the fight. No smile would appear on her face however. For, if her crew did not find her soon, the marine 'captain' lackeys will find her and she would be unable to handle a large group of them without the use of one of her legs.

With the addition of the pressure to his head, he rapidly ran out of the energy to keep fighting and slowly but surely slipped into unconsciousness. It had been such a narrow margin but victory had slipped from his grasp. Fortunately for the woman, her crew would arrive before the marines would guaranteeing her escape...eventually. In the days to come, as both of their injuries heal, who would know what the other was thinking. For Zelse, after the surge of relief that he woke up at all, the mystery as to why he wasn't finished off would plague him. What would happen if the two would meet up again somewhere further down the Grand Line? Only time will tell... ::
