Defrosch shot a bit of a glare at his mother when she threatened the bandits with death... It was clearly something he didn't approve of, even in jest. Though he trusted his mother far more than anyone else that he had met on Arcose in the past, he wasn't exactly sure if she was even joking about her threats.
The bandits laughed, almost all of them also conjured orbs of ki, ready to shoot. "Really? No new tricks? You already know that won't work." Defrosch tapped his feet in frustration, he really didn't want to go too far today. As the bandits shot their ki bullets, Defrosch's strength shot upwards! The sudden surge of energy either dissipated the bullets or knocked them off course into the snow. "One last chance."

Polara looked at the bandits with a glare, her eyes giving nothing away and her entire body rather stiff with slight, suppressed anger. She was not going to carry out any threats, and when the bandits spawned their balls of energy, she shakes her head. "Incompetent fools." She sighed.
Looking at Defrosch, she watched her son burn the ki bullets to nothing or knock them off course. "Don't make us have to put you down for a while." She said coldly towards the bandits. She was getting slightly irritated by their stupidity now.
The bandits murmured and cackled among themselves, apparently thinking that the warriors standing against them posed no threat. Several of these bandits began to let out more noticeable levels of energy-- it seems as though they are able to unleash their ki in larger form-- Defrosch's reaction to this was simple, he rolled his eyes, lazily holding one hand out to his side as his power rose as a small ball began forming above his hand... Now this is certainly something he has never been able to do when Polara had last seen him. Defrosch was always good at internalizing his ki, but...
Just when did he learn to control his ki offensively?
The atmosphere was at a standstill as both sides pumped more force into their attacks, that was until a voice rang out across the area causing the bandits to drop their charges. "ALRIGHT YOU DUNDERHEADS, THATS ENOUGH!" Defrosch held his ball of energy, but didn't raise its strength any further, his eyes narrowed as two figures moved through the bandit group, the members of which hurriedly scooted aside to let them pass.
The duo was comprised of a very pale sickly looking human with glowing eyes that wore dark black armor with blue decals and a spiked mask that was shambling along with a giant white furred Wolf Zoanthrope supporting him. "Do you not realize who this man is? You all sicken me. Dishonorable fools. Do you not remember what our PROMISE was?!" The human coughed having strained his voice a fair bit, the bandits cowered before him nonetheless. "I'll admit it would be easier to reign in these morons if I wasn't so rightfully stricken down, but, alas. T'is the price I must pay."
Defrosch raised an eyebrow, dropping the the charge he had held. "I don't suppose you'll mind if we discipline them, then?"
"Hmhmhm.. Not at all." The human wheezed, glaring daggers at his group of stubborn subordinates. "Come, Zyf, we have apologies to make and deeds to repay.." Signalling to the Wolf Zoanthrope, the duo continued on, and were willingly escorted elsewhere by available village guards.
Defrosch glanced over to Polara and the remaining guards before gesturing to the fear-ridden bandits. "After you~"

Polara noticed Defrosch strangely being able to control his ki offensively. This confused her to some extent, but she figured he just trained to manage it. That's my boy alright. She thought, a smile under her face guard. Polara was proud of her son for his strength, and her tail flicked softly as she watched the man speak and be held up by a giant white furry creature. Polara had no idea what zoanthropes were, nor what wolves were either.
As the bandit leader spoke, Polara saw Defrosch drop the ki charge. Watching the fear stricken bandits for a moment, she turned to look at Defrosch and nodded once. "Alright." In the blink of an eye, Polara rushed forward, spinning on the spot and slashing her tail outward, intending to clock a few of the bandits across the head with the heavy appendage, avoiding impaling them with the spikes on the end.
After her small onslaught, she stepped back to let Defrosch have his turn with punishing them, and would watch if her son decided to take her offer. The bandits would have a large red welt on the sides of their faces from being struck by Polara's tail, with a high enough velocity to not kill or harm them, simply knock them out and leave a stinging welt.
The stunned bandits yelped as Polara and the village guards fought them off, many of them simply ran away while- for lack of a better word- 'carrying' their unconscious allies.
Those that stayed (or were simply too stubborn to back off) were still rooted to their spots in fear of crossing their boss, and because of this they didn't notice something seep into the snow; Defrosch's aura, which he had covertly 'liquefied' only moments earlier. "Y-y-you don't scare us!" One of them stammered, their stance betrayed by the weakness in their voice. Defrosch remained silent with his hands on his hips. "H-hey! I'm talking t-to you!" The snow beneath the remaining bandits shuffled slightly, but alas, they still didn't notice. "Come on, you b-broken now or what?!"
Defrosch had a strange glint in his eyes, and he chuckled softly as he looked towards the bandits. Geysers of liquid ki shot up in front of the remaining bandits, most of which either simply legged it on instinct or let out a terrified shriek before also running away. "Kheheh. That trick never gets old."
[Right, I reckon we've done pretty good. Perhaps we should start winding down the thread now, eh?]

Polara narrowed her eyes as she sensed Defrosch's ki shuffling through the snow. Looking over at her son, she quirked a brow slightly, flicking her tail as she then turned to the remaining bandits and huffed, breath pooling out into the chilly air. The Arcosian kept her eyes locked on the bandits, her eyes slitted into vicious blue lines amidst the white of her eyes. "Do we? Do we really not scare you?" She hissed softly in a low tone, her voice carrying over the chilled air. Polara took one step towards them, the snow softly crunching under her feet.
She turned back to see Defrosch's eyes glint strangely, hearing him chuckle her 'brows' furrowed slightly. Defrosch had changed so much and it slightly confused her but also made her proud. Yet she wondered, how did he do that. How. Hearing screeching from the remaining bandits, she saw her son's ki erupt from the snow and watched them run. Amusement twinkled slightly in her eyes as she walked back over to Defrosch. "Well done."
Defrosch started to whistle innocently as he watched the bandits fumble and stumble off into the distance. The village guards rolled their eyes trying to not burst out laughing, the best they could do is grin before giving a short bow to the two Arcosians. "Well, we're gonna go join the others to watch over Siero and Zyf to make sure they don't pull any funny business. Defrosch, would you mind coming along?" Defrosch looked over to his mother with a shrug. "Yeah, I don’t see why not. Ma’ you can come along if you want-" He quickly gestured for the guards to pay attention before continuing. "-Uh, guys this is my mum by the way."
"If someone is trustworthy in your book, they're good with us. She can come along if she wants to." The guards took the lead, going towards the village's most prominent building; the chief's house. Along the way they assured the citizens that it was safe, but still best to stay indoors.
"Hey!! Over here!!" The young Latto was standing in front of the big door with another pair of guards and enthusiastically waved to Defrosch and Polara.

Polara looked down at the village guards as they bowed, face guard up and eyes blank. She still didn't trust anyone here as of yet, but her distrust was not noticeable under her calm exterior. As they spoke to Defrosch, she looked at them with calculative, cold eyes. She wasn't called Polara for no reason, and gave off a slightly cold aura. Twitching the tip of her tail, she noticed Defrosch looking at her and listens to him as he spoke.
Nodding once, she would follow her son but keep up her guard while looking calm on the exterior, easily masking her emotions thanks to her face guard and naturally blank, expressionless eyes. Hearing Latto, she raised a hand in a small salute to the boy as they proceeded to go to wherever it seemed they were going.
