"A leap of logic, but.. Hiraz?" You ask him.
The Stranger looks over at you, an ancient and wordless fury in his eye. "I was called that name once, and have had many since."
The dragon's spirit rears back for a moment, before biting down at Hiraz with lightning speed. His hands are wedged between the dragon's transparent fangs, and his muscles strain against the titanic spirit. He wrestles it to the ground, pounding away at its skull with his fist as he holds it in place with one hand. It slips away, screeching.
"No way." Tayn says, looking over at him. "It can't hurt you?"
Hiraz holds up his hands, and you can see countless tears in his flesh, some kind of shining black surface beneath in place of his bones. "Not quite. I just hate this bitch."
"VENGEANCE!" The dragon howls, breathing out a blast of transparent, crackling thunder. It passes through Hiraz, blowing a chunk of his clothing off of his back, along with more of his flesh, but still he stands.
"Is immortality one of your curses?" You ask him as you move, casting protective spells on your allies.
"You might say that." Hiraz grunts, digging his fingers into the ground below him. He rips out a chunk of earth, and it begins to glow red hot, like molten rock, a moment later. "You might also say I'm too stubborn an old cuss to die peacefully!" He shouts, spinning his body and releasing the huge chunk of earth into the air. The glowing missile contacts the creature, and it yowls in pain. Bullets are fired into its form, and more and more they begin to split apart its form like water. The wounded soldier by Turen fires shot after shot into its skull, as Turen launches volleys of spells along with the other spellcasters. However, they seem to fall short, having no effect on the beast.
"Anyone have ideas on getting past its spell resistance?" You shout, but your voice is lost in the roar of combat.
