Huh, seems odd but I guess it doesn't matter much either way since Jalter just mind manips ftw. And yes she probably can do that since she already does so easily to numerous dragons, including the likes of Fafnir who would have similar, if not superior, magic resistance (including mind manip) as Saber.
She is also nearly x4 stronger than Aquilo, better at combat, magic resist to cushion the elemental manip and has dragons to run interference, match Aquilo's flight, and for even more magic resist. Dragon Witch vs a Dragon probably wasn't the best idea Vel.
Simultaneously, everything became static. The hundreds, maybe thousands, of people stopped moving.
This was ‘Dragon Fear,’ the ability of a transcendent species which allowed them to dominate those below them. It didn’t mean much to Theodore and Randolph, but the merchants and pirates couldn’t resist."
Basically all magicians and sword masters have natural resistance to these sorts of abilities so she only really uses it on fodder.
She is also pretty arrogant and usually uses water bullets to kill ppl, but she does also use dragon words to control the natural laws:
The world stopped. Theodore realized it the moment he heard an unknown language spoken clearly.
It was magic which calculated the natural laws and changed the flow. If so, this power was the peak of a magician. The true power of a dragon was to change the existing flow and give commands above the natural laws."
But if threatened she uses dehydration:
"A blue dragon’s true power was their absolute dominance over the ‘moisture’ that existed in this material world. The water jet was Aquilo’s favourite technique, but she had other ways to attack when it came to just killing.
After all, no creature could survive without water.
Dehydration—the water stream that stopped at the transcendent’s body faded, and the water dried up without leaving a drop.
It was the method Blundell had used to kill Theodore a few times during Abe no Seimei’s test a few years ago. Dehydration dried up all the water in the body, making creatures die instantly."
I don't think her senses are that good, she should just have the standard being able to sense how strong someone is, and also being able to sense "the flow of the world" since she gave theo that ability.
Yeah, I meant that. If Aquilo can sense Jalter's power level and finds out that she's strong, would she assume Jalter to have mental defense like other strong characters in TBEM and choose normal combat?
Augh...in any case why are we even discussing this bloody fight on New Year's Eve?
We should be writing fanfiction about Jalter and Aquilo falling in love or something. Or maybe sharing a cup o' happiness for auld lang syne.
Okay, joke's over. Happy New Year to whoever sees this.
Jalter is human and Aquilo is a Dragon, which means their respective mindhax would work on each other, and Jalter's haxx gets a boost because her target is a Dragon. There must be some cancelling out going on here.
Also, what I mean is this. Does Aquilo's mindhax work in:
A) She can only do 1000 mental damage to each mind she haxxes, but she can haxx up to, say, 5000 people at once
B) She can do 5000000 mental damage in total, and the damage is spread evenly among every target she haxxes?
Secondly, I didn't say it would work. I said it would have the effect of blunting whatever Aquilo's mindhax would've done to Jalter, the same way blocking a metal bat with a big stick would still soften the blow even if the stick can't hurt your enemy.
