Hearing Freya's call, Ari knew that, normally, she would be one of those who stepped up to the front immediately. But, with her current state, it took her a moment to collect herself. Ignoring her nausea and burning muscles, she pushed forward, drawing herself up. With a cry, she slammed her foot into the chest of a guard who'd been drawn by the commotion. His feet left the ground and he flew back. She sucked in a sharp breath. Her aura was low enough that even that use of strength caused her stomach to roil. Linus quickly pushed ahead, unwilling to let his sister even attempt to continue on the front line. He shifted both weapons to sword form and pressed into the enemy ranks, both men and grimm alike, Hestia and Diana flashes of gold and silver in his hands. Seeing that the gate was down, Maugrim quickly left the guard tower to rejoin the fight below.
